DECO DESK AND FIRSTFINDS SWITCH PLATES




I am not a real fan of art decor style furniture.
But I do have to admit it is all made with nice solid wood which is great to work with. When
I started working on this DIY paint project
I never dreamt it would turn out as good as
it did.




Labour day came and went and the sunshine came along with it.
One of the pieces I worked on in the nice weather was this cute little deco desk.
 

I sprayed it with a 50% - 50% ASCP mix of Old White & Pure White.
and lightly edge distressed it before hand waxing. 


I filled the original holes on the six drawers so I could pick what ever size of fancy handles I wanted.
The desk was all finished but the drawers had to dry over night. I was so anxious to pick
the handles I pulled a whole basket from my stash and spread it out on the bed.
Of course when George comes to bed there has to be something said,
"what is going on here" and he emphasises it like Scott from The Canadian Pickers.
Before you know it he is helping me chose the right handles for the project.

The knob on the middle drawer is a new piece, it's a fun acrylic bead and rhinestone knob.
I don't think you can tell from the photos but it is quite large and really pretty.


The handles were salvaged from the dresser vrs. vehicle grudge match earlier this year.


For those who didn't get to read that story:



I took notes while installing the new handles so share.

If you need some shabby chic white hardware stop into 
the FirstFinds Etsy shop.

We also have a large selection of outlet and light switch plates.
